Because you want to play an army that can out-horde Imperial Guard and fuck up tanks with insectoid mini-Godzillas.
Every Tyranid unit needs to be assigned a Hive Fleet, either from the established fleets Behemoth, Kraken, and Leviathan to name a few or one of your own devising. No matter what edition of the game, Tyranids have traditionally been defined by three special rules; SynapseInstinctive Behaviourand Shadow in the Warp.
For some reason, designers have tended to tinker with these every rulds a new codex comes out, much to the endless aggravation and rage of countless Tyranid players. Once for the index, and again for the codex.

When in doubt, rely on the codex version until the rules inevitably get changed once again. Another Codex brings another maanthrope of Chapter Tactics-equivalents, representing the main 3 Hive Fleets in the fluff Behemoth, Kraken, and Leviathan as well as 4 others that range from the nalanthrope to the entirely new.
Unlike other factions with Chapter Tactics-equivalents, your choice of Hive Fleet does not limit which special characters you can take. Splinter fleets take the Adaptation of their progenitor, while Hive Fleets not otherwise listed can pick and choose whichever Adaptation they like.
As of the latest FAQ, these only work with Hive Fleet detachments, not any Tyranid detachment, meaning they do not synergise with Genestealer Cults in any way. In most cases, these were worded to say Hive Fleet anyways. The Hive Mind discipline is the only psychic table your psykers will be rolling on, or choosing from. With the Codex, there are now 6 powers plus the automatically known Smite power.
The biggest difference, other than two thirds of the below do multiple damage per wound, is how many melee weapons now have a Normal, Monstrous and Massive variant that is the same stat line but the bigger they are the greater the potential to do more damage.
A note on tails: The awful days of being forced to make one terrible tail weapon attack are over. All of the tails are optional now and do not take an attack away from the user. This does mean, however, that units with tails had their actual attack stat lowered by 1 to compensate. This equals out to a wash but do take note when reading the codex that your Hive Tyrant’s now 4 attacks aren’t crippled by losing one to the tail.
Trygons got to keep their six attacks, meaning that the tails are actually now purely a bonus on them!
Tyranids still maintain a wide selection of ranged weaponry, much of it now with improved range. It still suffers from terrible AP and makes up for it with volume of shots.
